Here is a link to my home earthing condition when the lights are dimly lit https://youtu.be/eqR-CawKdgw

Measuring a socket I am seeing 225 volts between hot and neutral as expected... But 91V from neutral to ground and 144V from hot to ground (when I would expect to see 225 volts).

My home is a 220 V single phase connection. All LED lights are glowing in my home.

    Are your switches dimmers, lighted switches, motion sensors, smart switches, anything like that? Are you in the Philippines? Commented Sep 29, 2018 at 17:00
  • These are normal switches... Nothing fancy. No not in Philippines in India

  • Are the LED lights connected between switched hot and neutrai? Or between switched hot and earth? Commented Sep 30, 2018 at 0:15

Finally found that there was a leakage of current from the mains... The neutral was getting earthed from the streetlights and many of the houses are receiving current but due to lack of LED lighting they were unaware.
